Not Just a teacher, blogger, TPT'er, but a Thirty-One Consultant too!!!!

I love Thirty-One products and always have!  I have sold the majority of my products to teachers and it is super easy!  Lately I have haven't been very active with my business because of everything else that is going on in my life!  (Kids, school, sports, TPT, Blogging, Lesson Plans, etc!!)  If any of you out there would ever like a catalog, message me and I'll mail you one.  They always have great specials and their products last!! :)

I HATE reading logs, but LOVE this book!!

If you are big on Reading Logs, AR points or just reading strictly for comprehension, you need to read this book!!!  This book will (or should) open your eyes about why kids read!  I started talking to my students about reading logs about 4 years ago and they were VERY honest with me...they said they lied, their parents lied and that they didn't read.  Well, I had a feeling about all of that and threw out their reading logs.  We started writing letters back and forth to each other about what they were reading and it was AMAZING!!! They were pulling out all the skills that we were working on in class and applying it to their books (cause/effect, compare/contrast, conflict, point of view, etc)!!  Enjoy this read!!  Thanks to Diane Meyer for this recommendation!! :)

FREE Valentine's Day Goodies!

I know that I'm a little behind on things, but I hit my 100 likes on FB in November and didn't get my Freebie up, so here it is!! I have several students who tear, poke, and draw on their name tags, so I decided to make some for February! :)  I hope you enjoy.  Oh, and there is a tag for a Valentines gift for my students too (make two cuts in the heart and then stick a pen or pencil through it!)  I love doing thing for them, so I though they might enjoy this too!
